EMCD Consultation, respond before January 30, 2021

The EMC Directive 2014/30 / EU is a legislation that must ensure that equipment that is admitted to the EU market does not cause interference. Despite the EMCD, however, radio amateurs experience daily nuisance from equipment that causes interference. Even equipment that does have a CE mark regularly appears to cause a lot of interference. Think of optimizers for solar panels, LED lamps or switching power supplies. But with this EU consultation you can indicate what you think should be improved or what is right.

Why we are consulting
The purpose of the present evaluation is to assess if the EMCD is still fit for purpose in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value. The evaluation intends to collect evidence and information to identify possible difficulties during the implementation that may require regulatory or/and non-regulatory corrective measures and the adequacy of the Directive’s provisions in light of scientific and technological progress. On the basis of the conclusions, the Commission will assess whether next steps may be necessary to improve the performance of the Directive.
